If you haven’t heard, 2015 is the Year of Honda, with our favorite automaker releasing some of the biggest news in their manufacturing history, and it seems only fitting that American Honda would start the new year with record January sales. This is not much of a surprise to us at Detroit Area Honda Dealers, however; we’ve been
sending Detroit Metro drivers off behind the wheel of new Accords, Fits, and CR-Vs since we rang in the new year.
The Numbers Point to More New Honda Drivers
American Honda Motor Company just reported a sales total of 102,184 units for the month of January for an increase of 11.5% over January 2015, with the CR-V, Fit, and Pilot accounting for much of the significant boost in sales.
- The 2015 CR-V was Honda’s top selling model in January at 23,211 units (up 27.3% from 2014).
- The new 2015 Honda Fit has been bringing in record numbers as well at 5,802 models sold, up 85.8% over this time last year.
- The 2015 Honda Pilot nearly doubled their sales from January 2014, reporting a total of 12,315 units sold (up 97.9%).
Jeff Conrad, Honda Division Senior VP and general manager, responded to the great news by saying “The new year is off to a strong start with three core models selling at record pace, and this is only the beginning. With an all-new HR-V crossover … an all-new Pilot … and more big news on the horizon, this is going to be an epic year for Honda.”
We can’t wait to see what the February sales numbers will be like.
